This meetup was created to bring Africans ( Immigrants, First Generation, Carribeans, and African Americans) from across the world together to celebrate each other, build community, and to unite. Too often, we create divisions, and thus, misguided conflicts, that pit us against each other, rather than to find commonality and celebrate each other.
Goals for this meetup is to cultivate meaningful friendships, networking, and genuine community. Activities and get-togethers will occur regularly and consistently, and will include such events as African potluck, music events, outdoor activities, book club, volunteerism, and travel. Such as the name suggests, many of the events will center around African themes. I'm all about celebrating us, so this will include events that celebrate small African businesses and such.
Rules for this group are standard, and includes respect for all individuals, their culture, and their ethnicity. Hate of any kind will not be tolerated and you will be immediately removed from the group. Strict No-Show policy will be enforced. If you No-Show (less than 24 hours notice) to 2 events, you will also be removed from the group. This meetup are for serious attendants. This is important to build the type of community this meetup calls for.
Thank you for your interest in Africans of the diaspora. I look forward to having you be a part of this community!
